Baking Basics

with NU alumna '87 and Amie Bakery owner, Amie Smith

About the Baker: Amie Smith has always loved baking and watching friends enjoy her creations. Maybe it’s because of her lifelong obsession with Julia Child, or maybe it’s because she grew up elbow-deep in her father’s stockpots of batter. Either way, after more than two decades of working as a corporate writer in Manhattan and a teacher at Northeastern University, this pastry chef at heart couldn’t ignore the call any longer.

Today, with a degree from the Institute of Culinary Education, Amie is on a mission to share her love for “real” pastries. In her words, “If you haven’t tasted real pastry cream, you probably think the vanilla pudding you’re buying is delicious. But once you taste the real thing, you can’t go back.”

Whether she’s baking for others, or showing people how to prepare real treats for themselves, Amie’s at her best when she’s in the kitchen, right back where it all began.

Free admission: If you would like to attend just the Xhibition Kitchen event without eating lunch in the dining room, please sign in with an ID and proceed directly to the XK. If you plan to stay for lunch and eat in the dining room, please pay the à la carte meal rate upon entrance. Thank you and enjoy the show!

The cutting edge venue at the dining halls is the Xhibition Kitchen, located at 11 Speare Place inside Stetson West Eatery. A variety of programs are hosted in this innovative kitchen which include chef demonstrations, cooking classes, book signings and interactive display cooking.
